Wedding Vows: Finding the Perfect Words
Mike Macfarlane

I've read this from cover to cover, having begun with very little knowledge of writing my own civil wedding vows. This gives very practical advice on the ceremony and the things you can & can't say when standing at the altar. I enjoyed the modern wedding readings section at the end as well, as there are some really meaningful wedding poems. You may be wondering how the author knows so much about writing civil wedding vows. Well, he is a registrar, which made it all worth while for me. Who better to tell how to write your own wedding vows than a registrar himself. This meant he wrote really unusual civil wedding vows into the book that couples he has married have used in the past, which was fantastic. This has inspired me to write some really personal wedding vows for my partner & I.
